Hello from China!

In two previous posts, I highlighted China's domestic mega-infrastructure projects (The People's Republic of China at Age 65) and China's global trade (China's Global Trade). In this post, I will highlight China's international projects in four categories as follows:

Follow up:

  1. High-speed rail.

  2. China in South America.

  3. China in Africa.

  4. Russia-China gas project.

1. High-speed rail

This is, by far, the most ambitious project in human history. For details, read: China rolling out global high speed rail plans and projects.

Let's look at it in three parts:

  1. South-East Asia.

  2. Central Asia

  3. The China-Russia-Canada-America railways.

1.1 South-East Asia

It's already happening! Read: Thailand's ruling junta approves China rail links worth $23 billion.

1.2 Central Asia

This is about to happen. For more, read: China Invites Bulgaria to Join High-Speed Asia-Europe Rail with Turkey.

1.3 China-Russia-Canada-America rail

This is a dream for now. For more, read: China wants to build rail-line to America. For me, a rail line for cargo makes more sense than for passengers.

2. China in South America

Let me highlight three projects:

  1. Nicaragua.

  2. Colombia.

  3. Brazil.

2.1 Nicaragua

This is about to happen. For more, read: China to Build Panama Canal Bypass Through Nicaragua.

2.2 Colombia

This is still in talks. For more, read: China in talks to build Colombian rail link rival Panama Canal.

2.3 Brazil

This is still in talks. For more, read: Why China wants to build a railway across South America?

3. China in Africa

China's interest and commitment to Africa are big. For more, read: Li pledges larger credit line, high-speed rail technology Africa and High Stakes in Africa: Can the U.S. Catch China?

4. Russia-China gas deal

Russia signed a huge gas deal with China on May 21, 2014. It is highlighted in the image below:

5. Closing

With three posts on China's domestic projects (The People's Republic of China at Age 65), China's global trade (China's Global Trade), and China's international projects, respectively, I hope to have given you a good picture of what China has been doing over the past three decades, as well as in the coming decades.

Now, compare China with the U.S., and the contrast should be stark. Do you still need a crystal ball to read America's future with regard to its head-on competition with China? I hope not!

I believe I have the most accurate diagnosis for America (Diagnosis for America: Cancer!), as well as the best solution (Solution for America: Term Limits and More!). For more, read my book: “The GOP Bible for 2016”!
